I too have this problem on one of my centOS work stations - I have two 
almost identical work stations running 64 bit versions of the os, but 32 
bit firefox versions. One machine is quite happy with the new flash, the 
other does a seg fault on any page that has a flash animation. My fix 
has been to use version flash-plugin- and this 
seems to work fine - go figure
